Why SEO Is the Best Plumbing Marketing Strategy
Each month, customers in the U.S. perform almost 2.9 million online searches for plumbers and plumbing companies. Considering more than 90% of searchers click on the first page of the search results, if your plumbing company doesn’t pop up on the first page for your target keywords, you’re losing business—guaranteed.
If you’re like most plumbing companies, you probably get 20 emails a day promising to rank your website #1 on Google. Like most things in life, if it sounds too good to be true, it typically is (after all—think about what your competitors promise your clients!)! With a million self-proclaimed “SEO experts,” it can be difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. At Blue Corona, we provide total transparency and services backed by tangible data.
We specialize in SEO for plumbing companies, which means we know more about the plumbing industry and plumber SEO than virtually any other digital marketing company!
WHAT IT TAKES TO OUTRANK YOUR COMPETITORS IN SEARCH ENGINES
If you want to outrank your competitors in search engines, you need to accomplish three things: First, your website code needs to be easy for search engines to find, read, index, and rank (Learn about our plumber website development services). Second, your onsite content (copy/text) must establish your company as an authority in the plumbing industry. And third, your offsite factors (ex. links from other authoritative sites) must be optimized to reinforce your site’s authority.
To accomplish that, our SEO specialists focus on:
- Website security (HTTPS vs. HTTP)
- Website mobile-friendliness
- Schema markup
- Webpage content quality
- Webpage content length
- Page speed
- Social signals
- Quality backlinks
- Optimized images
- User experience
Blue Corona offers turnkey plumber SEO services to measurably improve the ranking factors above. The result, for many of our plumbing companies, is an exponential increase in website traffic, leads, and sales!
Be Wary of Plumber SEO Scams!
Not all SEO companies live up to their promises of more traffic, better rankings, and more leads. Some SEO firms achieve results, but they do so using “black-hat SEO” techniques. These unethical strategies can hurt your plumbing SEO and rankings—and ultimately, your plumbing business.
Before selecting an SEO company for your plumbing company, make sure to ask the following questions:
- “Do you adhere to search engine webmaster guidelines?”
- “How do you determine SEO success?” For (Blue Corona), we always determine SEO success by increased leads—not rankings or traffic. Who cares if you’re getting more website traffic if it’s traffic from China and you’re a local plumber in Charlotte, NC!
- “What happens if/when we part ways?” Many companies don’t let you keep your website, or content—you’re merely renting it from them.
SEO for Plumbers: Our Process in More Detail
Step 1: Comprehensive Website Tracking & Audit
You can’t maximize what you don’t (accurately) measure. Accurate tracking is the foundation of every plumber marketing service Blue Corona provides. We market our clients’ businesses as if we owned them ourselves. To provide you with intelligent decisions about your advertising, marketing, SEO, and website, we must first evaluate your marketing the same way a great accountant would review your financials. Most SEO companies brag about rankings and traffic. Guess what? Neither of these metrics matters if you do not see increased booked jobs, revenue, and profit from organic searches (for terms other than your company name!).
SEO is a zero-sum game, which means that for your website to move higher up in the organic search results, you must leapfrog websites which are currently perceived to be better optimized than your site. One of the most common questions plumbers and plumbing contractors ask us is, “how much SEO do I need?” You can’t (intelligently) answer this question without first doing a thorough analysis of the other plumbing companies in your area.
A typical plumber SEO audit includes:
- A business intake so that our account managers see your business from the owner’s perspective
- Analytics and SEO software implementation (we use a set of tools no other plumbing SEO company has—it’s the only SEO software specially designed for the HVAC and plumbing industry!)
- Keyword research and identification
- Competitor analysis
- Analysis and evaluation of your website code, structure, and content
- Analysis and evaluation of your company’s presence online—linkscape, social media, and more
The output of our SEO audit process is an overview report and SEO strategy, which our team will present to you (allowing time for extensive Q&A).
Step 2: Foundational, Technical SEO Improvements to Your Plumbing Website
Armed with the data derived from the SEO audit, the second step in the SEO process is to make any foundational improvements required to facilitate your ongoing SEO success. For example, to rank well on Google, you need well-optimized onsite content; however, if your website is not coded and structured correctly, the search engines will never see the great content you create. If code and site structure issues are identified during the SEO audit and assessment process, you must be fixed before any content optimizations occur.
Although every situation is unique, typical foundational improvements include things like revising your plumbing website’s title and meta tags, renaming various web pages, giving your website files a more logical structure, improving your site speed (load speed is a known ranking factor), enhancing your local SEO by creating more geographically relevant content, and even recoding your website onto a content management system (CMS).
Step 3: Content Creation and Content Marketing
With the right foundation in place, and armed right keywords, the next step in the SEO process is to update the content on your website and, when necessary, create new website pages. Contrary to what you might think, Google doesn’t rank websites—it ranks web PAGES. Each page of content on your site allows you to rank for a specific set of relevant keywords.
It might be helpful to think of your website as if it were a fishing boat, each page of content is like a baited line thrown into the internet sea of fish. More lines in the water (pages on your website) equals more fish (visits, leads, and sales!)! The content of your website must be targeted to your top keywords, but it also must establish your company as THE authority for what you do in markets you do it.
Most plumbers and plumbing companies hate creating website copy! That’s okay—Blue Corona has professional U.S.-based copywriters who specialize in creating unique, original, relevant and authoritative content specifically for the roofing, HVAC, and plumbing industries.
Step 4: Optimization of Offsite Factors and Local SEO
The final step in the SEO process is to optimize your overall footprint on the web, starting with your Google My Business page.
Most homeowners and property managers want a plumber that’s local to the area. When consumers make geographically related searches like “plumber near me” or “plumbing company in [city, state],” Google and other search engines show what’s called the local pack (otherwise known as map listings):
To get in the local pack, you need a flawless Google My Business page. With our local SEO services, we’ll do it for you and make sure it’s continually up to date with the latest information.
OTHER OFFSITE FACTORS
A part of building authority offsite includes generating links back to your website. Think of links from other authoritative websites (manufacturer’s pages, local chambers of commerce or the BBB) as votes of authority or digital recommendations. More links from high-authority sites equal more search engine visibility; however, you must recognize that not all links are created equal!
Buying links with the intent to manipulate Google’s ranking algorithms is forbidden and doing so can get your website banned from the search rankings. The right way to attract links to your website is to earn them by creating unique and remarkable content—content that is truly valuable to your prospective customers!

What is SEO for plumbers?
SEO for plumbers is the process of editing and creating website content and code that ranks your website on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. First, your plumbing website must be coded in a way that search engines can find and crawl it. To rank at the top of search engines, you not only need page after page of compelling website content, but your website also needs to be secure, frictionless, fast, and mobile friendly.
What’s included in plumber SEO services?
In your plumbing SEO package, you’ll get a digital competitive analysis, website content and code optimization, new website content, local SEO, measurement and tracking reporting, and continual tweaking.
Should I hire a plumbing SEO company?
An SEO company handles the day-to-day tasks of monitoring your plumbing company’s online presence. If your business doesn’t have the resources or the time to comb through stacks of analytical data, rankings, and traffic patterns, you need a plumbing SEO company.
How long does SEO take for plumbing companies?
If you’ve got a good plumbing SEO partner, you can generally see results between 3-6 months. If you haven’t seen movement by then, don’t give up—a lot goes on behind the scenes, and the true measure of success is organic leads and newly booked jobs.
